Haya Baby Shower Haya Baby Shower As I am writing this post (two weeks too late), because babygirl Liel has been welcomed to the world:) YES I am officially a mother of two little precious and beautiful girls, and my heart couldn’t be filled with more love than it is right now. But rewind two weeks ago, Treatwell.es and OPI Nail Bar Barcelona decided to celebrate me and babygirl Liel, with a Beauty Baby Shower, filled with sweets, manis, friends and family, I felt loved and spoiled. Haya Baby Shower Haya Baby Shower Haya Baby Shower Haya Baby Shower

For those of you who have experienced pregnancy (and those of you who haven’t) you must know what emocional and sensitive times these are, so when you are surrounded by loved ones, and supportive people it means the world. Which is one of the reasons this pregnancy was so much easier, as well as the fact that I had a toddler to care for, and well my husband travels back and forth from Barcelona to DC for work, so I had zero down time as you can imagine. Which is why when one of my favorite Beauty apps like Treatwell decides to celebrate my baby and me, at O.P.I Nail Bar one of my favorite nail salons in Barcelona, I rejoyce and say YES PLEASE! We had such a fantastic time with the delicious sweets made by the talented Frosting Barcelona, and enjoyed the pampering as you can imagine. I hope you enjoy the photos, and stay tuned for more posts this week, especially the one where I introduce Liel!

Monnalisa Barcelona

monnalisaOnce again it has been a while, since I have managed to post on the blog! Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that Im back in Barcelona enjoying my city, my family and of course the beautiful sunshine, with my babygirl right by my side! I have been here for almost a month, and have had the chance to check out new hotspots which I will of course share on the blog, as well as all the stores, not only for myself but for my babygirl Shirel as well! One of my favorite brands for her is Monnalisa originally from Italy, it’s designs are a mix of classic, with playful touches and nostalgic prints thrown into it. I was invited to the Barcelona Monnalisa store to learn about their new collections, so I could see the pieces first hand and of course share them with you all. I don’t only love their designs but I also am in love with the store’s design, the soul of the brand is beautifully presented in the store with eye catching wallpapers, breath taking armoires, little details in every corner of the store, it makes me feel like Alice in Wonderland every time I enter the store, which is one of the reasons I could not resist their invitation! Here are a few photos of my favorite pieces, hope you enjoy them as much as I do, and I can’t wait to share more, and especially the outfit I picked for Shirel! monnalisaMonnalisaFullSizeRender

New Year, New Life…

Shirel

YES, I know I have been m.i.a for a few good months, but I do have a wonderful excuse, as on October 6th 2014 (a day before her papi’s birthday) I became a mother of a little angel baby girl named Shirel! Her name means God’s poem in Hebrew, which her cousins picked out for her, combining both their names (Shiraz + Daniel= Shirel)! As you can imagine these few months have been literally an emotional (and phyisical) roller coaster, never in my life could I have been prepared for what was about to come, yes I’ve had 9 months to prepare and loads of amazing advice from family and friends, and even strangers! But nothing prepares you for all these mixed feelings coming at you all at once, the ups and downs, of course it helped so much to have my family around me, to be home in Barcelona and having my husband’s support and help at all times. So you might be asking what is it you feel? It’s difficult to put into words, I will try though… Joy yet sadness, pain yet happiness, exhaustion yet ecstatic, fury yet love, hope yet nothingness… And so it goes on, and the thing is you are feeling like that about everything and everyone around you, including yourself, and that first moment you see yourself in the mirror after it all (not to mention all the other first moments that are happening on a daily basis), guess what you don’t recognize the person staring back at you, and it is kind of eye opening, because you know that it is you but it is most definitely a new you, a you that you will come to know, understand, respect and love, because you have just added a new layer to your skin, now you are not just a daughter, sister, wife, friend, you have also become a mother to a new life who is your daughter, who herself will become someone’s sister, friend and someday wife… And so it goes on, like a full circle! And though no one and nothing could’ve prepared me, just one smile from her one look and it IS all SO WORTH IT!  So yes this is definitely a different kind of post, and a different side to my blog, and just like my life has changed and evolved so will GoodGood Gorgeous, because it is inevitable, and I hope you will all enjoy it! Today Shirel turned 3 months, and those early days of motherhood seem so far away, I get to see her discover the world one day at a time, and she is such a happy and smiley baby which melts my heart! I tell Jeff (my husband) every day, that she is my best friend:)! Here are a few photographs summarizing the past few months, from Barcelona to London, and finally DC. Stay tuned this week as I share my London look, and my Rent The Runway look…
